On a Walk through Guangzhou's famous market district, we saw a number of things for sale. From Tiger Claws to Dried Star Fish. From dried lizards to dried snakes.
or the ever-present giant dried fungus.
Still, the people were fascinating to see. I cannot stress enough how comfortable I felt walking the streets in China, yet in similar places here at home, I would definitely question walking around without a few friends.
Did I ever mention I think I ran into Picachu?
We became a family in Guangzhou. We all became much more comfortable with each other.
And we weren't the only family that thought so. I wish we'd take the camera to breakfast once, since many of the families there were in the same situation with a whole bunch of the same issues! We had Chloe, whom everyone thought was a sweet little girl. (Of course, Cora and I knew better from our experiences with Chloe at night)
Yet, during the day time, she seemed such a sweet little girl!
but when you asked her to go to bed she became a holy living terror...but after she gave up, she was a sweet little girl who was asleep.
And this is the bed we got down on our knees and worshiped. You have no idea how important a soft bed is until you sleep on something like we slept on in Changsha! It was like going from concrete beds to something with a mattress. Chloe felt the same since she slept peacefully in her crib. Oh, those were the days.
She was such an out-going little girl, who knew she would continue such expansions? She continues to be fearless and wonderful. Even now, when she can sometimes be a handful, I am proud to know that I am the one she calls "Daddy."
I'm a lucky man. I have a lovely wife and a wonderful daughter. Who could ask for anything more?
